Off the beaten path, Plage de Saleccia is worth the arduous trip to the long pearly white sandy beach that stretches a little over 1 km (0.6 mi). Juniper dunes to the east separate the beach from the pine forest and the western Padulella Marsh, while the mouth of the small coastal Liscu River lies to the west.
Although accessing this beach is difficult, it's worth it because it is never crowded. The 10 km (6.2 mi) dirt road is accessible from the village of Casta on the D81. It is best driven using a motorcycle, dirt bike, or a 4 x 4 vehicle, or you can consider renting a horse. If you're feeling adventurous, you can rent a boat to visit the beach via the sea in St-Florent, walk the footpath, or take the shuttle that stops at Lodu.

Plage de Saleccia reviews
Too many boats, driven by too many unrespectful people. The local government should block them before, as it happens in Lotu. more »
You really have to take the speed boat taxi to easily reach this beach which costs 30 Euros each. Somewhat expensive but fun trips as the speed boat taxi touches 40 knots across the bay ! Exciting..... more »
Beautiful beach. Just so many little boats keep coming and can be annoying. Lots of seaweeds also.
Nice beach, white sand, warm wather. Negatives: boats with turists and lot of "sea grass" (at one time the sea looked brown few meters from beach) - july 2019
